. i was reading a review of the 2008 town hall debate barack obama had with senator john mccain at the time. they said he was dispassionate, he ambled when he chose his words. sound familiar? so i will say this, i agree with lz, the town hall format lowers the ball. i don't think people like head to head as much. it's more about connecting with people. >> that was tom brokaw's debate in 2008. he talked about doing a town hall debate this morning on "meet the press" and he said it was very tough. he said something like, i'm paraphrasing, my condolences to candy, because it's a tough debate to do. let's talk about joe biden for a minute and go back to last week's debate. we knew "saturday night live" would have some fun. take a look. >> first of all, i want to thank center college for hosting us this evening. >> oh, boy, here we go. >> four years ago, president obama made a promise. [ laughter ] >> that he would bring down unemployment below 6%. >> oh, this guy. i mean. >> that's funny. and i have to say, do you think this will be old news by tuesday, lz? >> well, it's old new
governor romney that. we had the opportunity to talk to obama and senator john mccain in 2008. he told us because of scheduling issues he couldn't sit down with us. but there's a month to the election. >> can you get it out before the election? >> that's why we have the website. >> glamour magazine, it's on the stands now so make sure you take a look. remember, for more political coverage as well with the analysis, you can check out cnn.com/politics. >>> i want to quickly take a look at the stock market and find out what's happeng there. we're down about 94 and some. our christine romans will talk to me later on with regard to your finances, but something even more important, how the stock market is playing a critical role in what you think about the presidential election versus congress and whether you're going to re-elect someone to go back to the hill. we're back in a moment. when you have diabetes... your doctor will say get smart about your weight. i tried weight loss plans... but their shakes aren't always made for people with diabetes. that's why there's glucerna hunger smart shake
in the cincinna senate, that's longer than any other senator in the state of pennsylvania. president obama said arlen specter was always a fighter, from his days stamping out corruption as a prosecutor to his three decades of service in the senate. arlen was fiercely independent never putting party or ideology ahead of the people he was chosen to serve. >>> one of those who knew arlen specter well and covered him on capitol hill, cnn chief political correspondent candy crowley. he was also known as snarling arlen. >> he believed what he believed. he could be cranky, he didn't mush li much like -- he didn't suffer fools. he was a very smart guy. the history that he covered in his career, not just the senate, i think he was there for like 30 years, but the history, he's on the warren commission, he was one of the attorneys for the warren commission who looked into the jfk assassination, just the time he spent, all the supreme court nominees, he loved the laws, he was on the judiciary committee, he played such a pivotal role in selecting some of the supreme court justices who sit on that bench or
there. >> you know, i had to laugh. because while it is true, senator obama did not have a lot of foreign policy experience, what he did to shore that up was to bring in joe biden as his vp candidate. what did mitt romney do? he brought in paul ryan who has even less, if you could imagine that, foreign policy experience except maybe perhaps voting against tougher sanctions on iran while he was in congress. as far as that argument's concerned, i think it's rather debunked. i want to read to you very quickly a quote from mitt romney from that video with the 47%. this is his -- this is his foreign policy in a nutshell. so what do you do -- this is about peace in the middle east. you say you move things along the best way you can. you hope for some degree of stability. but you recognize this is an unsolved problem and we kick the ball down the field and hope ultimately somehow something will happen and resolve it. that's what mitt romney said on foreign policy behind closed doors. whatever he says today in a couple of hours, you got to juxtapose that to that quote in the video when
with the republican philosophy. >> he switched parties, becoming a democrat. he won president obama's endorsement. >> i'm thrilled to have arlen in the democratic caucus. >> incurring the wrath of many home state voters. >> i consider senator specter a traitor, quite honestly. >> the senator tried to explain, taking crowds back to his childhood. >> i became a jfk democrat. >> it sounded as if he wanted us to believe he had never really been a republican. >> i probably voted more often on the big issues with the democrats than with the republicans. >> do u regret ever having become a republican? >> i did my best for a long time to moderate the republican party. and the great day when they refused to talk about the stimulus which was necessary to avoid a depression. >> he, nonetheless, had president obama and the democratic establishment, but it wasn't enough. specter lost the 2010 primary to then-congressman joe sestak, effectively ending his political career. he will be remembered as a tough interrogator of supreme court nominees, as judicial political chairman, a supporter of cancer research and
